You know how sometimes when you buy a new couch or chair, you put it in the room and maybe rearrange the furniture and everything else looks shabby? So then you decide that you maybe need a new lamp over there and wouldn’t some curtains be nice and all of a sudden you’ve painted the room and have all new furniture? Yeah. That. But outside.
It started simply enough, with a new patio that we’ve been meaning to put in since we bought the house in 2007.
This wasn’t a DIY project by any means. Is HIY a thing? Because we totally hire it ourselves. We know our limits and our talents and patios aren’t on the list. We found a great guy who did the patio and planters. Then we asked him to do a small paved section on the other side of the house, build a large planter box and who knows what else. I am trying to get a matching U-shaped planter on the other side of the house. SO exciting. We’ve been trying to get this stuff done forever. More pictures soon.
Spencer is super-excited because we nearly doubled his driving/riding area. Plus, it makes an excellent outdoor dance floor.
We got the pavers off the shelf at Lowe’s so nothing that fancy. For the curious, it’s the allen + roth luxora collection. They are on base and sand and then set with polymetric sand, not cement. From out my window, it seems super easy!
